The above picture was supplied by the Leatherhead Advertiser and is of the Chairman, Michael Boatman on the right, and the Hon. Secretary, Barry Feltham at our Christmas Meeting. We had a record attendance for our Christmas meeting with 73 members enjoying the food and drink on offer. The raffle raised well over £200 with the star price being a hamper. The Club auction with over 130 lots was one of our most successful. We also had a stamp quiz, which was won by our Vice Chairman, Graham Mytton.

The Secretary, Barry Feltham displayed his Christmas Charity Post for Fetcham, Bookham & Effingham, which has been in operation since 1984. The Charity Post raises money every year for Practical Action. A charity which combats poverty by providing practical and sustainable aids to self-sufficiency such as efficient wood-burning ovens, ploughs, cycle trailers, solar powered lighting, wind pumps, hydro-power, seeds, rain water storage facilities, irrigation systems etc., suitable for villages in remote and challenging areas in Africa, Asia and South America.
